Get the Benefits of Pure USP Grade L-Glutamine Supplement
SEROLG is a 100% pure pharmaceutical grade L-glutamine supplement, specially formulated to help aid GI function and recovery in professional athletes.
SEROLG is a one month supply of L-glutamine monohydrate powder (300 grams) with no other ingredients or fillers.
Benefits of L-Glutamine
L-glutamine is the most prevalent amino acid in the bloodstream. It is used in the gut and immune system extensively to maintain optimal performance. 60% of free-form amino acids floating in skeletal muscles is L-glutamine. L-glutamine plays a very important role in protein metabolism, and it appears to be a very important nutrient for SEROVERA® users. When supplemented, it may help you reduce the amount of muscle deterioration that occurs because other tissues that need glutamine will not rob the glutamine stored in the muscle cells.
There have been several recent studies into the benefits of l-glutamine and what properties it possesses, and, there is now a significant body of evidence that links l-glutamine-enriched diets with intestinal effects; aiding maintenance of gut barrier function, intestinal cell proliferation and differentiation, as well as generally reducing septic morbidity and symptoms associated with autoimmune and gastrointestinal diseases.
Help Prevent Catabolization : Glutamine has been linked to protein synthesis. It prevents your muscle from being catabolized (eaten up) in order to provide Glutamine for other cells in the body.
- Stay Hydrated : Glutamine helps maintain cell volume and hydration, speeding up wound healing and recovery.
- Stay Charged: Glutamine helps replenish declining glutamine levels during intense episodes of immune disorders or diseases.
- Increase Growth Hormones: L-Glutamine has show to spike hormone levels. Research has shown 2 grams of L-Glutamine increased growth by over 400%
Aiding Recovery After Surgery
There have been several recent studies into the effects of glutamine and what properties it possesses, and, there is now a significant body of evidence that links glutamine-enriched diets with intestinal effects; aiding maintenance of gut barrier function, intestinal cell proliferation and differentiation, as well as generally reducing septic morbidity and the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The reason for such “cleansing” properties is thought to stem from the fact that the intestinal extraction rate of glutamine is higher than that for other amino acids, and is therefore thought to be the most viable option when attempting to alleviate conditions relating to the gastrointestinal tract.
These conditions were discovered after comparing plasma concentration within the gut between glutamine-enriched and non glutamine-enriched diets. However, even though glutamine is thought to have “cleansing” properties and effects, it is unknown to what extent glutamine has clinical benefits, due to the varied concentrations of glutamine in varieties of food.
L-Glutamine and Exercise
Glutamine is mostly made and stored in your skeletal muscle, where it is taken up for its various duties in your body. The harder and longer you work out, the more glutamine you use. Eventually, your body can no longer keep up with the demand for glutamine, leading to a decrease in levels. Strenuous physical exercise and exhaustive training programs cause a decrease in glutamine synthesis and an increase in uptake by immune and liver cells. Inactivity also negatively impacts the amino acid — sedentary individuals also saw reduced levels of glutamine production and availability.
L-Glutamine and Fitness
“2 to 3 gram dosage used post workout build protein, repairs and build muscle, and can induce levels of growth hormone found in the body.” These are all factors for muscle gains. More protein equals more nitrogen directly relating to growth. Better recovery means less soreness and increased injury prevention.
L-Glutamine and Fatigue
Runners, swimmers, triathlon and other endurance-type athletes can experience fatigue during training and events. This fatigue can stem from ammonia build-up in the bloodstream, which may potentially be removed by glutamine. L- glutamine and carbohydrate combination “reduced the accumulation of blood ammonia during prolonged, strenuous exercise. Dehydrated athletes responded better to a glutamine-infused beverage than to water. Athletes who drank liquid with L-glutamine showed longer workout times before muscles reached fatigue.
Safety of L-Glutamine
Glutamine is POSSIBLY SAFE for most adults and children when taken by mouth, but the potential side effects of glutamine are not known.
Adults should avoid using more than 40 grams of glutamine daily. Children, age 3 to 18, should not be given doses that are larger than 0.65 grams per kg of weight per day. Not enough is known about the safety of higher doses in children.
Special Precautions & Warnings
Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of glutamine during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
Severe liver disease with difficulty thinking or confusion (hepatic encephalopathy): Glutamine could make this condition worse. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
Monosodium glutamate (MSG) sensitivity (also known as “Chinese restaurant syndrome”): If you are sensitive to MSG, you might also be sensitive to glutamine, because the body converts glutamine to glutamate. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
Mania, a mental disorder: Glutamine might cause some mental changes in people with mania. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
Seizures: There is some concern that glutamine might increase the likelihood of seizures in some people. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Usage: As a dietary supplement, take one teaspoon (5 grams) 1-2 times daily with juice or water.
